Holidaymakers will be happy to hear that walk-outs involving French Ryanair pilots, which were scheduled for several French airports the weekend of July 23rd and 24th, have been called off.
The union representing French pilots working for Ryanair has reached an agreement with the company, and thus have cancelled their walk-out scheduled for this weekend (July 23rd and 24th). The strike was intended to impact Marseille, Toulouse, Bordeaux and Beauvais airports.
Pilots with Ryanair in Spain are also covered by the agreement, and therefore will cancel their planned to strike, which was set to take place from July 25th to 28th.
The company said in a statement that the agreement will include a return to pre-pandemic salary levels, as employees had accepted pay cuts during the crisis to keep the company afloat. As a result, the union representing pilots, SNPL, announced planned industrial action has been cancelled, as shown in union’s tweet below.
